Michael Rosen (mathematician)
Michael Ira Rosen (born 7 March 1938 in Brooklyn) is an American mathematician who works on algebraic number theory, arithmetic theory of function fields, and arithmetic algebraic geometry.
Rosen earned a bachelor's degree from Brandeis University in 1959 and a PhD from Princeton University in 1963 under John Coleman Moore with thesis Representations of twisted group rings. He is a mathematics professor at Brown University.
Rosen is known for his textbooks, especially for the book with co-author Kenneth Ireland on number theory, which was inspired by ideas of André Weil; this book A Classical Introduction to Modern Number Theory gives an introduction to zeta functions of algebraic curves, the Weil conjectures, and the arithmetic of elliptic curves.
